GeekSpeak – Is it time for a global food reset? Join the discussion May 6th at 12pm SLT


The way in which food plants are grown is changing.  DNA engineering, hydroculture, recreating ideal environments inside giant containers; all these techniques will soon be widespread.  Food plants are, right now, quite different from the way they were in earlier centuries.  What will they be like in 100 years?

Will all countries grow all the plants that they need when they don’t have to rely on natural conditions?  We will gain food security but lose world trade.  Will countries that now export food suffer?  How will the global economy change?  Will we soon see a worldwide food surplus?

Come to GeekSpeak on Saturday at noon SLT to discuss our food.  Bring your own carrots, and all your farmer friends!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday in the GeekSpeak auditorium, if you have ideas for new subjects.

GeekSpeak – will we lose all our online privacy? Join the Discussion Saturday April 8th at 12pm SLT

What does ‘Born in the USA!’ mean to you? Right now being American means that you have less online privacy than the people of North Korea.  Your ISP now has the right to store and to sell all your online activity, every little thing.  If you look for erotica online will you get ads for it?  If you don’t log in for a week can you expect a visit from burglars?

Probably the rest of the world will follow America.  So what will it mean when every detail of your online life can be sold, mixed, data-mined and resold on a whim?  Perhaps you think it is a good thing.  Perhaps it will stop illegal activity from being planned online.  Or perhaps you are terrified but have no idea how to fight back.  Maybe we can give you some tips.  Or maybe we should all just run for the hills.

Come and join us in GeekSpeak.  Remember though that nothing we say is private.
